Two good friends that appear to be more than that to the outside world. The guy is always flirty in public, but that is where it ends.
Story Behind the Song
Two good friends who keep the outside world guessing about their relationship.
Wow...sounds like you have a real tease on your hands. Nice story of a rather frustrating relationship. Very nice work on both parts...the song itself and the fact that there was some release for the jilted lover in the story.

Innuendo Tango Diane Westin © 2011
You're flirty in public and shun me when we're alone
You tease me at parties and run away when we get home.
Your duality perplexes me, and I'm left wanting more,
You're charming despite your fright, but my love life's a bore.
2. We dance to the music, you hold me close to your heart,
We waltz through the ballroom, like lovers who never will part,
We're the envy of couples who stare; we're the charm of the night,
But we never cross that daring line, to a lovers delight.
3. We stroll through the square, and we linger at an outdoor café,
We talk on for hours, our laughter fills the air.
You usher me valiantly, but there's a secret I know,
Innuendos that we parade, are a theater show.
4. One summer I spent with a passionate lover from Rome,
His temper was testy, he always had to stay home,
His jealousy chained my heart, his addiction control,
Your friendship fulfills my soul, don't ever go.
5. I'll be flirty in public and shun you when we're alone.
I'll tease you at parties and run away when we get home.
My duality will perplex you; you'll be left wanting more,
I'll be charming despite my fright, don't ever go.
